Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve is one of my favorite days of the year. This year was GREAT! We started the day with my friend and her 3 kids coming over since both our husbands worked and we made a huge yummy breakfast. My sister came over after she got off work and so my friend and I went in my room while and wrapped a bunch of presents. We then headed to our first party at my brothers house. We had a huge ham dinner. Everything was so good. We played a few rounds of bingo and all the sudden the door bell rang and we all ran up to find Santa and Mrs Clause there!!!! All the kids got to sit on his lap and got a candy cane. My older 2 had no problem going right up to him. Kamdyn was a little hesitant but once he was on his lap he was fine. Brynlee on the other hand was TERRIFIED!! I decided Mrs Clause might not be as scary for her but boy was I wrong. She cried and shook her head no the whole time she was on her lap. Before they left we all sang Jingle Bells and Silent Night. We then exchanged all our gifts and as they started dessert we loaded the kids up and headed to Kamrins parents house. We got our pjs and exchanged our gifts cause Kamrins sister wasnt going to be there on Christmas. We sang the song we sing every year. Did our traditional toast and when it was his sister Shaless' turn she toasted for their second baby due in June!! Cute way of announcing her pregnancy!! It was truly an amazing night!! Im so blessed to have such an amazing family!!!! I love them all so very much so to be able to spend time with them all in 1 night was the best!!!! When we got home the kids sprinkled the reindeer food outside and off to bed they went so Santa could come bring them lots of toys!!!!!

One of my favorite presents!! This along with 24 Mountain Dews!!

Madyson is 6!!!

My little lady Maddie is 6!! How is this even possible??? She is such a little firecracker. She is the little mommy to her brothers and sister. She loves to help me with laundry and dishes yet hates cleaning her room. She loves music and loves to dance.

On her birthday I took her to the dollar store to spend a gift card she got at her party the week before. She picked lots of makeup of course. We then went to Smiths so she could pick out her cake. While looking for cakes the girl at the bakery overheard it was her birthday and made a HUGE deal of it. She took us to the front of the store and got the manager who made Maddie a huge banana split and made me a chocolate sundae. She then got all the employees that werent helping customers and they all sang Happy Birthday to her. Even cooler was Santa was there handing out cake and hot cocoa and even he sang to her!!! No everyone can say Santa sang Happy Birthday to them. We then had a little party for her with cake, ice cream and presents. She loved every second of her day!!

You are growing into quite a young lady. You are a fiesty little girl thats for sure. You are such a big help to me. You love taking care of you baby sister especially. You love that she is growing up and can play with you now. Watching you 2 play dolls together makes me so happy. I love you so much and love watching you grow and learn so much in kindergarten. You are doing so good and getting great grades. I love you sis!! Happy 6th Birthday!!!

2nd Annual Hammond/Nelson Christmas Party

I love that we have friends we are so close with that we do a Christmas party with!! We did it at the Nelsons house again. We ate a YUMMY dinner, made ornaments, made reindeer food, watched a movie, decorated a gingerbread house and exchanged presents. It was so much fun!!! The kids had a blast and so did us adults. We always have such a good time with them!
